Tomb of the Virgin Mary, Jerusalem

4.5
Considered by many Christians to be the final resting place of the mother of Christ, Tomb of the Virgin Mary provides an atmospheric encounter with a 5th-century church. Enter through the 12th-century Crusader facade, winding your way down the staircase to the ancient Byzantine crypt. Containing the ancient empty crypt of the Virgin Mary, it is believed by many to date back to the 1st century CE. Inspect the colorful icons, and don't miss the smoke blackened stone--thought to have been left behind after Mary's ascension to heaven.
